Peddler’s Faire Readiness
This coming Saturday, while most of you are still in bed, I will be up chugging coffee setting up my booth for the Peddler’s Faire. It runs from 8-5 but set up is from 5-7 a.m. … Too early for my blood. But I wanted to show you some things that I’ve got going.
I have created this collage to promote our sheep. I will have some raw fleece there in a handmade Hubby box along with information on the Jacob sheep. We get a lot of locals who shop there so am hoping for some more local sales!
I’ve done a couple of prints in frames. I liked how this one turned out, especially since I picked the frames and matting without having the photos in hand! Never have done that before and things turned out alright.
The frame on the above photo is distressed pine looking with a really grainy texture. I love old distressed looking wood and I believe this really works with the photo of my Kiger mare “Sister” (Annie Oakley.)
By the way, it is Sister’s birthday today! Happy Birthday to one of my most beautiful and favorite equine girls.
I also got my donation to the JSBA’s (Jacob Sheep Breeder’s Association) 2009 AGM ready for shipping. Here it is in a nice black frame with black matting. I thought that these would do well in most anyone’s home. If you want to donate to the JSBA by way of raffle ticket buying, please visit their site by clicking on the highlighted link above (in orange!)
Now my last piece is a favorite among many. I tried two different frames and I’ll show you both:
This is a real ash wood frame that I got for a great price. It is very heavy but it makes the picture look small. That photo is 8×10 and I think maybe the frame is overpowering.
So thankfully I had this one lying around and like it much better. Less red, which sets off the red in the photo. What do you think? Which do you like better?
I’ll keep you updated on the Faire. I’m looking forward to it.
Thank you also, for all the great name suggestions! Please keep them coming — I’m really enjoying each and every one of them.
